On playing the role of Major Monica Mehra, Jennifer Winget shares, “Code M is not only my first ever digital debut with ALTBalaji but for me, it’s been an opportunity of a lifetime. Working on this show was even more special as my very first television break too was given to me by Ekta. Coming to my character on the show, once you get into an army uniform, it’s a different high all together but also a huge responsibility on your shoulders to uphold your mannerisms and stance as an officer. There is no room for slip-ups. But with all the support from my cast and crew, I’d like to think that I’ve successfully portrayed my Major Monica Mehra. I am excited to hear what the audience reaction to the show and my character is.”
Speaking about the launch of the series, Rajat Kapoor quipped, “I am really excited that to be the part of Code M and now that it is finally released, I am looking forward to know about the audience’s response. With each one of the teams having put in so much effort and dedication, we hope that the show evokes feelings of patriotism in the hearts of one and all.”
On playing the role of Angad Sandhu, Tanuj Virwani shares, “I am extremely proud to be a part of an army-based web-series and portray the character of Angad who’s shown as a civilian lawyer in the series. This series has definitely taught me a lot of things which is going to help me in my further projects. It was not an easy project to work on, but certainly one of my most interesting ones.”
